My TTC journal
I thought, instead of making new "journals" for every cycle, that I would only have this one. Aunt flo showed up today. Closing in on 2 years TTC:ing and I'm really starting to wonder what causes all my chemical pregnancies. If some of my "positives" are caused by a cyst, or something else. Or if it's my immune system that's gone awry. I have several allergies (both pet allergies, grass, some foods etc) and fibromyalgia. I've read that sometimes the immune system can be the cause of implantation faliure, which makes it a possibility in my case. Planning on seeing an obgyn next year, to see if there's any help we can get from there (most likely not). In the meantime, I'm gonna continue taking maca and I'm also thinking of trying chinese acupuncture.

Got my crosshairs a few days ago and my first thought was "go home FF, you're drunk". Didn't get my normal temp rise, only a really slight one. Slept like shit 2 days ago and got a higher temp, but discarded it. Knew it was high due to lack of sleep. Yesterday it was low again. Today was the first morning this cycle that I woke up and felt that "after-ovulation-warmth". So hopefully I ovulated yesterday, but it remains to be seen. It's the first time I got a positive opk and didn't ovulate the same day. At least my husband's back home now.

I'm anything between 9 and 5 dpo today. Have been really cold since yesterday and are starting to feel a light nausea, so I guess my current cold are going to get a bit worse soon. My hip hurts a bit when I walk and it feels a bit when I had spd with my son, but not as bad. My body is probably just more sensitive to things now due to my fibromyalgia.
Anyhow, I actually took a pregnancy test today. Not because I was checking for a pregnancy per se, but to see if this brand's prone to evaps or not, since some are very prone and others aren't. I think I see an extremely faint evap, so not to bad. Now I'm gonna wait a few more days before taking one again.

So, around 7 dpo today. Still having cramps and tender boobs. Woke up and noticed one boob have gotten bigger. I'm going to temp a day or two more, and then I'm gonna stop. I primarily uses it to confirm ovulation anyway and now that my cold seems to get worse, it may affect my temps anyway.
